Was here with a group of friends to witness the site after 20+ years - it has changed a lot as there are more pits to see and the overpass walkways are no longer available.

Wonderful, historical, experience. Where do you start.... impressive restoration of ancient terracotta warriors. Almost unbelievable pits filled with many restored figures.

I understand Hong Kong citizens can also enjoy discount at tourist sites like museum if he is 60 or 65 (at different discount rate) and at 70 is usually free. According to my experience the different discount rate varies from province to province from 60 and 65. Hope this helps.

It is my experience that Chinese are not used to replying to email inquiries or complaints, or even complimentary words...The best way is to call and talk to someone over the phone if you have suggestions/complaints.
